I have an AlphaPC 164 which boots off of an NCR 53c875, connected to
a Quantum Fireball. It seems to be stable.
This isn't 53c810, obviously, but the driver is the same, and only a few
differences exist, as far as software is concerned.

The driver is a mess, but it does work fine with several peripherals. I
think you'll be OK as long as you don't have an over-sensitive disk.
